Internships are a key tool for companies to not only easily identify future hires in a risk-free environment, but also for those same companies to take advantage of having work completed by a highly educated and talented workforce at a fraction of the cost of full-time hires.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 10, 2009
Intern Bridge, the nation’s leading college recruiting consulting firm, will offer an online version of the company’s acclaimed full-day workshop, designed to help human resources professionals learn about internship best practices.
The Internship Management Online Academy will provide proven best practices based on the most recent Intern Bridge national survey of over 42,000 college students from 400 universities. The Academy will provide information about making the business case to host interns, structuring an internship program, targeting the most appropriate universities, employment law, compensation issues, and much more.
Over nine hours of content will be presented over six different sessions directly by Richard Bottner, the company’s founder. Bottner was recently inducted into Business Week’s list of the Top 25 Entrepreneurs Under 25 in the nation for his work on Intern Bridge. Human resources professionals will receive nine CEU credits from the Human Resources Credential Institute.
“These are clearly tough economic times, but the number of available internships is still expected to increase. Organizations are realizing what our research has shown since our inception,” says Bottner. “Internships are a key tool for companies to not only easily identify future hires in a risk-free environment, but also for those same companies to take advantage of having work completed by a highly educated and talented workforce at a fraction of the cost of full-time hires.”
The Academy is set to launch on Tuesday, March 10, 2009 at 1:00pm EST. Registration includes a copy of the leading internship publication Total Internship Management: The Employer’s Guide To Building The Ultimate Internship Program, a $40 value. The cost of registering for the Academy is $299 for a for-profit organization and $249 for a not-for-profit organization or government agency. For more information, visit internbridge.com/academy
